Reconstructionists Expanding Our Conversation - Open Conversation

Wednesday, 11 May, 2022 10 Iyyar 5782

8:00 PM - 9:30 PMZoom

Please join us for a series of learning opportunities led by Reconstructionist rabbis on Israel/Palestine. Guided by the values of justice and the dignity and equal worth of all human life, we seek to promote discussion of the histories and current conditions of Israel/Palestine that challenge the boundaries of current Reconstructionist approaches to Israel/Palestine and re-examine customary assumptions about the role of Israel in diaspora Jewish life. We oppose Israel’s domination of the Palestinian people in all its forms and hope to deepen our relationship with Jews and Palestinians seeking a future of justice and equality in Israel/Palestine. We welcome those who consider themselves Zionists, non-Zionists, and anti-Zionists, and those unsure about how they define themselves, even as we explore the meanings of these terms.

We are committed to conducting discussions with open hearts and minds, respectful listening, and acknowledgement of our shared commitment to the Jewish values of tzedek ve-chesed (justice and compassion) for all. To that end, we have adopted these discussion guidelines. Each one and a half hour session is free and includes lecture and discussion.

Please consider making a donation to advance these conversations and the future of this project. (When making a donation include a note: Israel/Palestine Talks) This series is co-sponsored by the following Reconstructionist congregations: Congregation Dorshei Tzedek, Congregation Shaarei Shamayim, Havurah Shalom Israel/Palestine Committee, Kol Tzedek, Mishkan Shalom, and Or Haneshamah. (List of congregations in formation.)
